Caring for a parent, spouse, or other loved one can be a 24/7 job that is emotionally, physically and financially difficult. That’s why AARP works tirelessly to support family caregivers, striving to make your big responsibilities a little bit easier.
On the go
North Dakota has become the latest state to add safeguards to its long-term care resident rights law to address privacy, consent and electronic monitoring in long-term care facilities. These rights extend to residents of nursing homes, basic care and assisted living facilities and swing-bed facilities.

If you’re not currently a caregiver, you likely will be one in the future or need the help of a caregiver yourself at some point in your life. This year AARP North Dakota is hosting a series of caregiving telephone town halls to help support North Dakota family caregivers.
